Evidently, he is an appreciator of life, and especially the small things of life like a wheelbarrow which although we tend to overlook them or underestimate their value, they are vital to the happiness and survival of mankind.
The same themes are present in the poem, where the speaker asserts that like Quentin, he has problems letting go of the past, and that he is the past, a past that cannot be escaped. Chan uses first and second person views, free verse, enjambment, alliteration, simile, imagery, symbol, language, irony, paradox, and allusion to support her views on memory, language, and death.
The central theme I am using to connect these extracts are hunger, emotional, educational and physical hunger.

The typical register resorted to by the poet comprising of word such as “woe”, “moan” and “grieve” really stress on the basic feeling of loss expressed in the sonnet. This sonnet does use complex sound patterns. It effectively uses
